JewishGen Danzig/Gdańsk SIG Presents:

Locations of Jewish Vital Records from Danzig
This chart summarizes the locations of Jewish vital records from Danzig, including its precursor communities, either records created by or about the Jewish communities or, in italics, civil records that include Jews and non-Jews. Other types of records (e.g., tax lists) are not shown below. Date ranges do not necessarily mean that there are records for every year in the range, but there often are. The "Uncertain" category is for records where the date range, communities, or both are uncertain (but might be determined upon further examination). "FHL X/Y" means Family History Library Microfilm X, item Y (note: there are discrepancies with Family History Library Catalog entries due to inaccuracies in the Catalog); "Da/X" means file Da/X in the Danzig Collection of the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People in Jerusalem; "PSA X" means fond X of the Polish State Archives in Gdańsk (contact info at bottom); "USC" means the Civil Registry Office in Gdańsk. Note: Some PSA and Landesarchiv Berlin holdings are duplicates of FHL microfilms.

Green highlighting means that indexes of the records are searchable online as part of the Danzig Database, included in both JewishGen's Germany Database and Poland Database. Yellow highlighting means that indexes of the records are in the process of being put online (e.g., being transcribed or proofread). Cyan highlighting means that a substantial but incomplete name index is online as a preliminary step to full indexing of the records. For specific genealogical inquiries about in-process records, contact the SIG Coordinator. Acknowledgments: some of the information below comes from Peter Nash, some from Familienforschung in Westpreussen, some from SIG volunteers.
